Surround yourself with beauty and history when you visit the Piazza del Duomo. Hear the cathedral bells that transport you through time. Admire the architure and climb to the top of the Dome for an amazing experience.

walking down the street, heading towards the baptistery, as we turned the corner, the first view of the Cathedral, is Jaw dropping, I recommend anyone to do that walk :)

The piazza itself is gorgeous, but what makes it even more special is the constant presence of street artists and musicians. A great place to people watch.

These buildings are absolutely stunning and the general feeling is helped by the local musicians who play the most beautiful music

It's hard to imagine the age of the buildings, cathedrals, ancestry lineage compared to anywhere in the U.S. We've learned much about Italy and heard stories from grandparents about growing up in Ital and appreciated their culture. To see Italy in person made this an awesome experience and we want to go back again.

The site covers the Duomo, baptistery of San Giovanni, Giotto,s Bell Tower, the museum, rectories, the Bigallo Loggia, the. Archbishops Palace and bits more. I've done a separate report on the Duomo. We bought a pass for everything but mistakenly climbed the magnificent Bell Tower first and whilst the views were brilliant the two climbs were made difficult for relatively... More

It was packed because the locals can visit the sights for free on the 1st Sunday of the Month. However, we were able to wander all over Florence and still see many of the sights. Like the Basilica di Santa Croce, Ponte Vechhio Musuem, Palazzo Pitti, etc.

This square is one of the most visited squares in Europe.It is also called the "Cathedral Square". Lots of important monuments are located here. Also many cafes & shops are located in this area. Be cautious when the place is crowded , as advised by our our guide, as there are lots of pick pockets. A must see.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
